Hard to go wrong here; the fresh fish we had in mid-June (2015) was not only delicious, it was also remarkably reasonably priced--about 16 euros (including several sides). The combined meat platter (various kinds of meat) was also excellent. Almost every table outside has a partial view of the Acropolis, as well as of some rather large columned ancient building...

This restaurant is great for families and romantic couples too! We had their special of the day which was oven baked lamb with potatoes and a delicious salad. They also have plenty of other options on their menu that will make your mouth water. It has a nice view of the Agora and the Acropolis and an excellent wait staff... More

We went there because of the very good location, in front of the Ancient Roman Agora near the Acropoles, in Plaka.

We stopped here for a rest and a drink after visiting The Acropolis and then The Agora. The seats on the pavement have a good view of the Agora and have umbrellas for shade in the hot summer sun. We only had drinks here but it was a plesant interlude in a busy day. Prices were reasonable and staff friendly... More
